About the event

All Trust events and activities taking place from 1st September onwards will be carried out in line with current government guidelines and Health & Safety practices at that time.  As this will change over the coming weeks and months, we ask that you check regularly on the website for updates as any of these events may be subject to change or cancellation.

Please help to protect our staff and other members by not attending any of these events if you or anyone in your household is feeling ill or have symptoms of Covid-19.

Join artist Carol Baker for a day of sketching trees in the ancient woodland of Nower Wood. She will be helping you to use various pencils and charcoal to capture the beauty of nature. A short classroom session will be followed by time in the woods gaining inspiration to draw. Her individual approach to learning allows us to offer this course to both beginners and improvers.

Weather is not an issue. If it is raining there are a number of outdoor covered seating areas that can be used, Alternatively, our classroom has an amazing view of the woods where students can be inspired while remaining dry.

If you have a sketch pad (light or heavy weight paper) and any pencils/charcoal please bring these along. However, we will be providing enough materials to get everyone started.

Carol initially trained as a 3D designer, then as a fine artist at Chelsea school of art and subsequently at CASS where she completed her M.A. in Land Art images. She has exhibited across the UK and France, including the RCA London and Salon des Independants, Paris.

  • We ask that upon arriving at the centre, the delegates remain in their cars  until just prior to the course start time.(arrangements will be made for those not driving).
  • We will welcome delegates in our outdoor classroom rather than inside the centre.
  • The delegate’s temperature will be checked on arrival and anyone showing any symptoms which could be COVID-19 related, will be asked to go home. They will be given the option of receiving a course credit, a place on another course, making a donation or a full refund.
  • All surfaces and any equipment will be fully sanitized prior to each course.
  • Hand washing and the use of hand sanitizers will be required before entering the premises and throughout the day.
  • There will be a maximum of 10 delegates on this course.
  • We will maximise the amount of time spent outside whenever possible.
  • The doors and windows will remain open during this course to ensure regular airflow.

  • The tutor will retain a 2 metre + distance from the delegates.  In the cases where this is not possible, a face covering will be worn.
  • Following government advice, it is suggested that delegates wear face coverings indoors.
  • Delegates must bring their own packed lunch, water bottle/hot drink and cup. We are a nut-free centre, so please avoid food containing nuts.
